that republican governors ought to be looking at that poll and moving on, too. some southern governors like texas' rick perry wants to vote no on obama-care in his own way. but those governors their version is to secede from healthcare, and they're just dancing for the tea party. i know that. here's my prediction. all those governors, they will all opt in eventually. why? opting out is going to end their political careers. let's use rick perry as an example since he's threaten to go mess with texas. under obama-care most of texas' 6 million uninsured are going to get access to healthcare and federal aid. but that rational argument does not appeal to tea partyers like perry, turning down federal money is a badge of honor for them. but texans are still going to pay for healthcare reform. turning down the medicaid expansion means rejecting $76.3 billion in texas alone for five years. so texans are still going to pay billions in federal medicare taxes, but those texans are not going to get any of the benefits. does rick perry really want to campaign on that? does he want to tell texans, yeah you're g
